Slipknot’s Clown says he’s ready to share the band’s unreleased Paul Gray tribute song. Speaking to Minneapolis radio station 93X, Clown said

“the band had many songs that have never been released because they get taken up to a point, and they’re doing good, but then they just sort of fall short”. “We have a song that we wrote for Paul Gray called ‘Without the Gray,’ and it’s probably my fault, but I’ve held it for a long time. I don’t know why,” he admitted. “It was too close in the beginning, and it seemed like it needed to be for us more than for everyone else. And now I don’t care, I want it to be for everyone else instead of us.”

At present, it isn’t clear when ‘Without The Gray’ might be released. In the same interview Clown did say that he hoped Slipknot’s new record would be finished end of July 2021.
